 Afghan Undergoes Cosmetic Surgery in New Delhi to Get a New Wife

A 55-year old Afghan man has undergone a cosmetic surgery in New Delhi after his attempts to find a new wife failed as he was rejected for having a wrinkled face.

After the death of his wife in 2009, Abdul Khan (name changed) started feeling lonely. He wanted to remarry, but none of the women he approached would agree to his proposal.

Then came an advertisement on TV, which offered him a glimmer of hope.

"I had done enough for my family and wanted a bride for myself. I came across an advertisement on TV about facelift. Besides, my friends suggested that New Delhi would be the place where I could get it done," Khan told IANS over the phone.

Khan underwent surgery at the capital's Ganga Ram Hospital Oct 31.

He is now happy with the man in the mirror -- he looks younger and more attractive.

"I am quite happy to have got the facelift. I hope the women will not refuse me now," Khan said.

Khan was admitted to Ganga Ram Hospital Oct 30, and after surgery Oct 31, he is set to be discharged Friday.

Mahesh Mangal, chairman of the Department of Cosmetics and Plastic Surgery at the hospital, operated upon Khan.

According to Mangal, Delhi is emerging as a popular destination for cosmetic surgery in Afghanistan, because the strife-torn nation has limited medical services.

"In the last two years, I have operated on around 30 such cases from Afghanistan," Mangal told IANS.

"Once operated, the face takes about seven days to become normal again," he said.

The surgery costs about Rs.1.5 lakh.
